Let me show you P20Pro repair score below average and the sealed-in battery has whole stick in the phone which making the repair even harder. https://youtu.be/Ywc0f2FNbeo

Anonymous, 30 Jun 2018Can you describe Huawei's build quality? build quality is good.
aftersale service is much better than sony
I bought Xperia xz2 and become very disappointing
Sony must have to hire best Electrical Power Engineers and psychologist to design user friendly and attractive phones that attracts people of all ages and environments. Xz2 appearance is not like a high end expensive phone as compare to rivals it is heavy slippery and NOT user friendly software menu
At my home have 5 android phones and in every room a charger is permanently pined in socket but xz2 charging pin is different and need to carry extra charger every tine every where
Camera is little bit slower than Samsung rival S9
Sony must have to improve our phones and to study why iPhone Samsung and other brands are more in people hands
Anonymous, 30 Jun 2018Can you describe Huawei's build quality? Own Honor 8 Pro and Mate 10 pro.
Honor 8 pro aluminum body definitely feels very sturdy and heft. Drop from my hands level a couple of time and not a single chip present, heck i dont even put screen protector since bought last year and can assure no scratch presents either. On the back panel everything is flush, be it camera placement and flash placement, 7mm thk overall and even can fit 4000mah battery with small bezels.
Mate 10 pro was no slouch either, great quality feeling glass body, but i use case and screen protector on that one. My wife Mate 9 also feels very very luxury, drop a couple time as well with no signs of broken at all. You can check many reviews on youtube about all 3 phone built quality, for the price, its more than solid. Or feels it for yourself on your friends that own the phone or go to Huaweis retails.
Tann Hauser, 29 Jun 2018Yeah, lets have a healthy one.
Dont know why you promote those huawei phone cameras here tho,... moreWhy do i compare between Honor 8 pro and X performance? Simple, pricing. At that time i was in dillema wether to continue using Sony or pick other brand. Yes the same launch date Xperia phone at that time was Xperia XZ, and as i said it cost $200 more than 8 pro and X performance (it even small upgrade from X Performance despite new design language). At that time X performance and Honor 8 pro at the same price, $450. And for the same price, u are blind if saying X Performance better than Honor 8 pro (look at the specs again). Buy Honor 8 pro, really really have great experience with it. After that buy my wife Mate 9, and that phone is a beast as well, both built quality and features are solid for the price.
Why did i bring up Huawei brand in this section? Well at 1st i just want to see positive post about XZ2 phone in here, since finally Sony got their camera rights. But then saw your post regarding china brand not good, cheap because of something, and thats why i bring out the arguement here, because even i come from Sony flagship, i find out that Huawei phones are very good actually. So yeah, again, if u say china phone not good, Huawei is not one of them.
Been using xz2 for 2 months now. I think it's a good phone. Camera is good for me but the software is kind of needs updating. It needs to be more user friendly. Comparing it to my s9, xz2 has more detailed shots than s9 but also has more noise. As for battery life, I think this is the best phone with amazing battery life so far. In fact, much better than my s9. I think due to the S845? My s9 runs exynos so might be different for snapdragon-based s9.
Fingerprint sensor is not placed on the area like other phones but once muscle memory kicks it, it will feel natural. It is slippery so getting a case is recommended. The powerful vibration motor will move the phone on a flat surface without a case.
Cant stay much about the software. It has bugs here and there but considering it will be updated to Android P, software might improve.
Shui8, 29 Jun 2018Dude, i'm talking about Honor 8 pro, not normal Honor 8. It got double the ram, double the sto... moreYeah, lets have a healthy one.
Dont know why you promote those huawei phone cameras here tho, as honor 8 pro doesnt have any better setup than mate 10 pro, which on the other hand is not better than XZ Premiums, let alone xz2. And lets compare honor 8 pro to xz1 or xz premium, not X Performance, as it is a Honor 8 release time model, ok?
Also you seem to claim you used every single huawei and sony flagship so far?
Why, XZ2 is IMO overall better daylight photo and all type video cam than p20 pro, but not as good in 3 things only dude, photo portrait, zoom and night mode on p20 pro. Also screen, performance, sound, battery setup, build and software support are better on XZ2. And price is about the same dude.
So IMO huawei is not a better overall package, just preferetially better for those that use photo portrait, zoom and night mode much.
For ex, I seriously would suggest to outdoor activity, raw performance and gaming lovers, video rec enthusiasts, and selfie lovers not to go for huawei flagship, but rather Sonys.
Simple as that.
Keep it healthy, dude.
Tann Hauser, 29 Jun 2018Ya know, I use X Performance, my friend went from Sony and bought Honor 8 because of price, so... moreDude, I bought the XZ1 last week and I can't be more happy as it's a great device. I really love the boxy design of Sony with front firing speakers and not to forget the superb cameras and long battery life on this beast.
Tann Hauser, 29 Jun 2018Ya know, I use X Performance, my friend went from Sony and bought Honor 8 because of price, so... moreDude, i'm talking about Honor 8 pro, not normal Honor 8. It got double the ram, double the storage and comes with 4000mah battery, easily got 2 days life, stop accusing wrongly. As for camera, way better on 8 pro especially low lights compare to X Performance. Videos was just okay for me and better on the Xperia side (i take videos maybe once in a month while taking pictures daily). The whole package for the same price, goes to Honor 8 pro. I dont know whats wrong with your friends normal Honor 8 phones.
Look, i came from each Sony flagship phone and i know what im talking about, just state my personal experience before. As for P20 pro, turn the g0dd@mn AI off, camera become superior. Best dynamic range, best low light photos, best zoom details picture. It even comparable to Sony mirrorless camera when the AI is off, check it on youtube. And the handheld night mod? No other phone have an answer yet.
Lets have a healthy conversation.
Shui8, 29 Jun 2018Didnt i mention earlier as an overall package, huawei is better. Camera algorithm is just one ... moreYa know, I use X Performance, my friend went from Sony and bought Honor 8 because of price, so I pretty much know about both.
So seriously, you claim his phone is better than mine?
I didnt find a single thing on his phone that is better, except the price, not even batterylife.
My both cams are miles better, he cant take a single photo without motion blur on that cam, video lacks sharpnessand is unstabilised as heck, sound system uncomparable, screen quality uncomparable, I get over 6 hr SoT, he is on 5hr SoT now, and not to mention overall much better performance from my snapdragon SoC over his Kirin one.
So I dont know how you can claim that.
Honor 8 is an OK phone for its price, but better than X Performance?! Seriously?
and even P20 Pro is nothing worth the superlatives, except lowlight photo performance nothing else is to brag about, not even the pricetag.
Tann Hauser, 29 Jun 2018Good, remain a Huawei user.
When it comes to phones, its all about camera algorithms for you... moreDidnt i mention earlier as an overall package, huawei is better. Camera algorithm is just one of them.
Didnt i mention earlier that starting XZ2, camera starting to looks good? No need for that video comparison as i know it already.
And as for my phone choice last year, Honor 8 pro is a clear winner within $450. At that time, X performance cost the same, but 3gb ram, 32gb internal memory, whereas 8 pro 6gb ram, 64gb internal memory. And the camera? Like night and day, 8 pro on the better side. XZ cost $200 more (still 32gb internal memory). Do u think people buy phones not looking at other aspects? Many better sides on 8 pro. I dare u to compare camera quality with previous Xperia with Huawei P10, Honor 8 pro, Honor 9, Mate 9, Mate 10 series. Their camera leave Sony to dust, even with smaller sensor.
I experience them both, u dont, just by on specsheet and youtube comparison etc. I use to be like u man, just dont. Let us be happy that now Sony back on the track, along with XZ2 premium upcoming camera which looks very promising. Stop bash others when u dont actually experience them.
Shui8, 28 Jun 2018Nahhh i've been a long Sony flagship user, switch to Honor 8 pro last year, no regrets. Cheap ... moreGood, remain a Huawei user.
When it comes to phones, its all about camera algorithms for you isnt it? Nothing else on a phone interests you obviously...
your precious algorithms.
please, stop justifying your purchase with your subjective opinions, based on pricing only.
Bagas Satya, 29 Jun 2018Dude, They shouldnt ask for skyhigh price like Apple and sammy, come on, apple and sammy phone... moreSammy on same quality level with Apple and Sony?

Have you even checked the teardowns of latest devices?!

Quality device is always attractive, cheap device also attractive but without quality there s no loyalty. Its now more than 5 years for xiaomi in mobile industry, if only they have bad quality they wont have good sales this year.
And please dont mention unfamiliar chinese brand..

Cheaply assembled phones with top specs that ... moreNahhh i've been a long Sony flagship user, switch to Honor 8 pro last year, no regrets. Cheap quality? I feels it even sturdy than Sony. Did u now when $450 Honor 8 pro come out last year, camera quality is better than $900 iphone 7 plus at that time? Compare it with all my previous Sony phones, makes me realize how bad Sony camera algorithm is.....now i rocks with Mate 10 Pro.
Sony camera algorithm starting good since this XZ2 phones, but design not to be liking by most of the people, including me. As a huawei user now, i still missing Sony's UI (launcher, media apps), think its the best. Heck i even custom theme my EMUI to look a like Sony XZ2 UI. But as for overall package, Huawei's a better phone for me, as i experience both brand side by side. If u said China phone is not good, Huawei is not one of them.
Androider85, 25 Jun 2018U r wrong dont say sth u dont know about
Chinese phones r beast
I tried sony since it was ... more???
Chinese phones are absolutely not as good.
Cheaply assembled phones with top specs that just indeed justify their lower price range, but nothing else.
Its like buying a Corsair quality 64gb USB memory stick, or cheap "Ziochang" USB 128gb stick from china for the same price.
Always go for Corsair even tho its less Gb for same price, it ll last you 10 years atleast, and you need not worry bout it getting bust and losing your data.
Only reason some people think those chinese OEM are better is their lower price, you get more numbers for the same price, but...you will definitely feel the reason behind their lower price.
On the other hand, I understand people going for them. These premium level OEMs, now Sony added too, with 1000 bucks price ranges, asking just too much for sane minds.
